    Re: Do you like Casinos?

    At the Hard Rock in Tampa, the majority of people there are seniors and well over half are women. 95% seem to be "blue collar" economic level folks in general - at least at the slots.

    The younger guys tend to be at the tables and (to me) it seems pretending to be high stakes gambles betting and losing far more than they can afford.

    I've not disagreed with the subjective influence of company or culture on taste, in fact I clearly addressed it in post #31

    Please google what "all things being equal" means when making a comparison, like two plates side by side in a taste test.

    Taste being a sensory thing, a meal is not equal in different circumstances. I don't care how equaly you've arranged the molecules in both dishes.

    Taste, smell, sight, sound and tactile experiences are in no small part emotional reactions to stimuli. They can't be compared to, say, water boiling at the same temperature and altitude in both California and Morocco.

    To which I say THANK YOU! Think about this: why do you listen to the same kind of music as you did in, say, you're twenties, or go after the same kind of car as you did then (more or less, I'm certainly not denying we evolve)?

    I occasionally enjoy playing a little blackjack, but that's about it. I don't tend to go all that often because most of the casinos have a $15-$20 minimum on blackjack and I rarely want to spend that much money (or that little time) gambling.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Actually, I completely forgot about the college poker sessions I played with pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Those were actually pretty fun, and what was particularly interesting was how much value those quarters could take on in those circumstances.
